I'd dump the driver, the hybrid, the 4 iron and the lob wedge.  So ...

3 wood

5 iron

6

7

8

9 iron

pw

gw

sw

putter

At this point, I don't think it would affect me much as I barely use the hybrid and lob wedge anyway.  I also don't use the 3 wood much, but at this point I'd be better off with it than the driver, plus I'd have the option of using it off the turf, whereas I certainly don't have that option with a driver.

I'm going to go backwards because those clubs are more important to me.

1.  Putter

2.  56* Wedge

3.  50* Wedge

4.  46* Wedge

5.  9I

6.  8I

7. 7I

8.  5I

9.  3H

10.  Driver

A little bit harder than I thought to eliminate 4 clubs.  I got rid of the PW, 6I, 4H, 3W

Almost exactly this for me as well. However, I'd likely drop the SW (54°) in favor of my LW (58°) as that sees a lot more action for me.

See my sig--this is what I carry mostly. Driver Taylor Raylor 16*-I have had this old club forever and will keep it. 3H 20* 4H 23* Ram 5 iron-26*--I am holding auditions for a replacement-maybe a PING Zing 4 iron or a Snake Eyes 5 iron--this is supposed to be my 170-175 club, if I don't flush it, it isn't close. PING Zing 5 iron Hogan "9 iron"-- this is my Frankenseven. When I got it, it even had a bolt through the neck! I had it reshafted and bent to about a 7 iron. This is my go to 150 yard club. Wilson 9 iron I have 1 wedge that works ok from most lies if I do my part. Either putter depending on how I feel.

Driver - DROP (It's my favorite to hit, but it only has one use)

3w

5w - DROP (don't use it much though great for that 225 +- 10 range....)

4i - DROP (my most inconsistent club - I only seem to hit it well if sitting nice in short rough, only seem to use it for 210 yard par 3s, or layup tee shots on long 4's or layup 2nd shots on long 5's....I can lay up to other clubs)

5i

6i

7i

8i

9i

pw

gw

sw

lw - DROP (I like it, but use it least - I can learn more partial SW swings)

putter

It leaves a big gap between 5i (190 or so) and 3w (240 or higher shots) - but that isn't really my most accurate range anyway

3w - (Drives to 260 anyway vs driver (285 on a good day) and when I hit it with the right swing is more consistently straight too - and I can hit off the turf for those 240-250 yard shots - and can learn some choked distances - and am willing to learn partial swings on a wood (yes, I know it's metal)....)

5i - (190 yard vs 4i at 205-210 or so) - I'm ok with that difference.  I'm not accurate at 180+, just luckier than other times.

24°

This should let me cover the distance i want, i can choke down on the longer irons for shorter distances to cover the extra long gaps. Since i drive the ball long, i can get away with doing that very little of the time.

    • He started off playing the first hole exactly how he should: fairway, 20-footer for birdie to the fat side of the green, tap-in par.
    • @iacas-Tho it is nice to be able to take your time and type out what you mean to say this is one of the downsides to a forum too-You have to respond to a whole bunch of crap and a person can get all of their thoughts out uninterrupted. If you were been sitting in a room with @natureboy and he started drawing that entirely stupid picture with the lines you could have cut him off and spared all of us the pain of having to watch him so badly miss the point. I bet @natureboy is still going to look at the response-And I bet he is still not going to see where he went wrong. But that is because he is just that way and he is unable to see how stupid his own posts are and how little they actually deal with golf swings. His stick drawing is exactly why you asked for a video-Even though he posted it after you asked. His errors and flaws and stupid thoughts would have been even more evident if he had actually tried to make a vid.
    • Or… golf is hard, and he got hot for awhile. Wouldn't be the first flash in the pan. We'll have to wait to see what the true version is. He could be quiet for ten years and then win a few majors.
    • That makes a great third bullet point. Or a first bullet point, bumping my two down.
    • This photo and the text above illustrate pretty well exactly why I and the entire moderation team is now done with you. The image fails on two levels: The center image is not representative of an actual good golf swing. The right hip is closer to the right foot in the center image, yet you maintain that it's farther away. Whether the second thing is done intentionally or accidentally I don't know. I don't care to know. But it's very representative of how you argue, and why you're now going to be prevented from arguing. You pervert arguments to the point where we're no longer discussing the golf swing. You get basic facts or concepts wrong (like when arguing about course rating, misunderstanding the radius vs. diameter in faulting the rating process for higher handicappers). You focus on some small thing - which often isn't even something anyone else has said - and lose sight of the forest or the big picture. You're not here to help golfers. You're here to "win" an argument, a goal that as yet is unmet, and you have to post absolute crap like the above to try to do it. I had a bit of free time this morning. So I responded to your last post in some detail. It, as one would expect, contains a number of typical @natureboy traits: cherry picking a photo while ignoring the concept, failure to understand basic points, perversion of the statements of others, putting words in the mouths of others, use of vague words like "a lot" (often in combination with the "putting words in the mouths of others), and hyper-focus on some small largely negligible point. Nobody else should waste their time to read the below, or open the spoiler and read that. It will not shed light on anything, it will not help you with your golf swing, and you will not glean any useful information. It exists simply as my last effort at illustrating to @natureboy a small part of the reason why we're tired of him… even though as I post it I know with certainty it too will fail. I gave you twenty warning points last night. It was made clear to you what you had to do, and you failed to do so, flaunting the requirement in several posts. The entire moderation team - @mvmac, @RandallT, @boogielicious, @jamo, @billchao, @nevets88, @mchepp, others - and myself have simply gotten sick and tired of your entire persona here. You're constantly and never-endingly arguing stuff to the point where you bastardize things so much you're no longer even talking about the golf swing, and you fail to comprehend or respond to what's written to you in response. You have two real choices once your current suspension is over: You can ignore these warnings, continue to be a belligerent arguer, and receive a final 50-point warning that will result in your permanent ban. You can avoid behaving in the manner that infuriates the entire moderation team. That will likely mean limiting the topics in which you post quite a bit, because though you fancy yourself to be capable of discussing the golf swing from a theoretical perspective, you've proven that you are not. Now, I want to be very clear about something. You're not being warned or "handled" because you disagree. You're being handled here because you contribute nothing positive. You're belligerent. You don't help people. You don't demonstrate anything. You pervert and distort topics in order to make a point that often has little or nothing to do with how people actually play golf. You're on a mission to "win" an argument, not to further the understanding. You speak as if you know and fail to ask questions, despite the holes in your logic and posts being constantly exposed as gaping. You quite often fail to read what's written, take a beat, and try to understand it. P.S. This requirement is anything but arbitrary. The list of reasons are long, the surface of which was only scratched in this post. Arbitrary would have been to say something like "to continue posting here you must dress up in a purple outfit and post a photo of yourself diving from a diving board into a pool of jello." Asking you to post a video illustrating your point is the opposite of arbitrary.
